As the powers-that-be in Los Angeles try to muscle a mega-stadium into the downtown area, a rare bit of bad news has emerged.
Rich Connell of the Los Angeles Times reports that final approvals from City Hall could take up to a year. Per Connell, that’s “considerably longer” than the developer, AEG, had hoped.
Chief Legislative Analyst Gerry Miller provided an estimate that pegs the approval in roughly a year. Though AEG had hoped to move more quickly, AEG has opted for diplomacy. “We believe that the timeline described by Gerry Miller is appropriate and we are continuing to move forward with the project,” AEG said in a statement. “We look forward to an open and transparent process.”
More accurately, AEG looks forward to getting it done, sooner rather than later. But AEG realizes that later is better than not at all, so they’re apparently opting for patience, when patience is required.
